Sometimes, what feels like love turns out to be nothing more than well-disguised lust — and that seems to be the feeling behind Green Day‘s latest single, at least if the band’s latest statements are anything to go by.

“‘Oh, Love‘ is kind of like leading with your heart and not necessarily with your brain as much,” singer Billie Joe Armstrong told MTV during a recent interview. “And kind of maybe losing your mind and shooting a little bit more from the crotch area.”

Those themes will be reflected in the ‘Oh, Love’ video, according to bassist Mike Dirnt. “It pulls from the heartstrings, and it’s about love and sexual tension and things like that,” he added. “That said, I think the video is gonna tip its hat in those directions. I know we’ve got some real fun scenes that might involve motorcycles and us playing live and possibly some chaos backstage and things like that.”

“It’s more of a fun atmosphere going with these next records,” continued Armstrong. “Going into more of a party thing, almost kind of a ‘hell party.’ We have one song called ‘Makeout Party,’ which the events actually occurred. And that’s almost what the next video for ‘Oh, Love’ is sort of like.”
